Bell??

An old friend of mine works in the field in WA. Looks like a cool job. Sometimes she posts photos of herself snorkeling to count fish.

Do you think that I'm some kind of non-serious cyclist? :notamused:

Rest in peace.

I haven't ant words for this. I hope his suffering was minimal and quick.. long live the Pope.

When I started lurking here in 2016. Pcad was already scarce but he was around enough for me to get a sense of his personality. I also read about half of the first Addiction thread.

Forgive me if this seems inappropriate but speaking for all of us and Pcad; 2020 can blow me.

Hi. After 4 yrs, I logged on. Was just told about PCAD by Rog (if anyone remembers him). I was pretty sad about it despite my not so good relationship with him. So while logged in I thought I'd say hello. Still riding the same bikes, will be riding my age tomorrow for my birthday (53m), then eating lots of food and likely drinking one too many IPAs.
My private practice gave up the ghost, and I'm working for the VA and loving it, (COVID aside). I got remarried in 2016 and am the dad to a teenage girl (who alternates between being the best person in the world and driving me insane). So my life is blessed.

See you in another 4 yrs. :)

hey Ru

A month ago, we were planning to go out to LA to get my daughter ready to attend her freshman year at USC. Now I am thinking it's more likely she will be taking her classes from home. But it's still TBA.

I know. Iíve been resigned to the fact for quite some time to be honest. Luckily my wifeís work is still remote, but come fall she may have to start going in the office too, and if that happens it would be quite difficult to have two working adults in the house with two non-school going kids.

Really nice to see the "old timers" come back and pay respects to Pcad.

Thank you all.
